I added a feature request for CMI 5 in Storyline 3 and I suggest others do as well. Running into suspend_data issues with SCORM 1.2 and our clients are not willing to use other SCORM formats so we want to push our clients to work with LMSs with CMI 5. Having Storyline 3 with CMI 5 is critical. Discussion going on 3 years now.

We ran into suspend_data issues a while back also. We ended up publishing all new courses to SCORM 2004 4th Edition, which solved the problems. However, now that we've been looking at some new LMS vendors like SumTotal and Cornerstone, we're finding they only support SCORM 2004 3rd Edition.

The 3rd Edition should still solve the suspend_data issues, and seems to be supported on most LMS vendors, but sounds like your clients don't even want to go there. Just thought it might help to give a heads up in case they change their mind.

I was also amazed how the LMS vendors we looked at provide only limited support for xAPI published courses. One allows uploading xAPI courses, but not access to the embedded LRS from an external activity provider. The other has an embedded LRS, but only allows external activity providers to send statements - with no upload of xAPI courses directly to their LMS.

In both cases, they tout that they either support CMI5 now or will in the near future. It's like they skipped right over xAPI and went to CMI5. Of course the course development platforms that support CMI5 is a pretty short list so far.
